William please tell - who do you think Donovan influenced ? He was just another guy who picked up an acoustic guitar and wrote some drippy songs. His best record was witten by Buffy Sainte-Marie. Gift from a Flower to a Garden ? More like Gift from an Arse to a Toilet I would say.

Well, at the time, in an "icon" esque fashion, he was hugely influential in the states. I was at a family gathering in 1966 in which 16 individuals between 12 and 21 were present, and the three families were from SF, NY, and ND, and yet the only performer ALL of them thought was great was Donov. Not sure why, and not sure all of this means squat.

They also all dressed like him.

So, I made this pitch a month or so ago in which I argued that BHolly, BJones, Don and Syd were four of the most influential forces in the 60s.

But, it is just my bizarre little idiosyncratic list.

Pay it no mind.

No disrespect - in fact he bought his kids' clothes in a shop where my mother worked. Idiocyncracy makes this world more bearable.
